Shadow Box Decoration

I had fun making my first ever shadow box.  It was made to be a gift for a ladies dinner Christmas party where we play a game and the gift recipient is a surprise.  The frame/box was purchased at Craft's Direct (Waite Park, MN).  I wish the details of the items inside showed up in the picture but alas, this is all my limited photography skills could accomplish.  The snowflake tags were cut with the Very Merry Tags cartridge using the light blue glitter coredinations card stock.  The tags were shadowed with plain white paper.  The silver metallic ribbon is from Stampin' up.  The snowflakes were pop-dotted with stampin up dimensionals. The snow for the ground/background is the same blue glitter coredinations ripped to give it an uneven edge.  The pattern paper for the top of the background is from my paper stash. The snowmen are from Snow Friends cut out using white glittered coredinations.  I stamped the faces using peachykeen basic paperdoll face stamps.   The scarves are pop dotted (each of the two layers).  The goldenrod is cut from bazzil card stock and run thru the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder.  The red and green scarves are from my Christmas scraps of paper purchased last year at Target.  The finished snowpeople were double popped using stampin' up dimensionals.  The dark blue vinyl was adhered to the out side of the shadow box using cricut vinyl and the let it snow phrase is from Christmas Cards cartridge.
